The turbomatic is different than the turbo. Flatter across the top. My rear liked em, but the orig Turbo is harder and rounder. The Regal I'm riding now is kinda in the middle.Allez Rouge said:Can you elaborate on this? I have generally done better on saddles that have a rounded profile at the wide, back end. I can't recall how rounded my old, first-gen Turbomatic was, but I think the problem with my Regal may be that it's TOO rounded.
I rode the Turbo for about 20+ years. Liked the basic leather ones. I bought a couple re-issue ones a couple years back and didn't like em. I still have a nice 15 yr old Turbomatic I used for 10 years. But have since moved on to SMP models and Specialized Romin too. Much better for me.I'm in the market for a saddle. I was leaning towards a Fizik Alante. However, I started thinking about vintage saddles like the Turbo or San Marco Regal. I used to ride the Turbo saddle and am thinking of getting a re-issue for my bike. What do you think? Anyone else riding one of these? Pics please.
